As I previewed on Facebook yesterday, I have a new shipping and packaging partner – Pratt Industries. They have locations all over the country and I’ll be working with the team right up the road in Summerville.
What happened to the warehouse I was working with? It was sold. And with that sale management changed hands. It was pretty clear they didn’t want my kind of business anymore. I had to make a change.
Jerry Ward – the manager of the Summerville location – reached out to me a year ago. At the time I was 100% happy and didn’t want to change partners. When the situation started to change 3 months ago I was grateful that Jerry had kept in contact.
Not only are Jerry and his team shipping the bags out, they are also creating the new boxes. You’ve seen the mock-up. Below is the first glimpse at the real thing.
Along with this change comes another shipping change. Alesya Bags will now be sent via UPS rather than FedEx. Clients will still be offered several shipping options and should see little to no change in the cost.
The first two bag were sent from Pratt yesterday. I hope it’s the first two of thousands.
